Oscar-nominee Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) is trying to topple the whole damn system of discrimination in the new official trailer for the Ruth Bader Ginsburg drama "On The Basis Of Sex."

Also starring Armie Hammer (Call Me by Your Name) as Ruth's tax lawyer husband, Marty Ginsburg, and co-starring Cailee Spaeny (Pacific Rim Uprising, Bad Times at the El Royale) as Ruth's teenage daughter, Jane, the biographical film chronicles the early years of RBG's legal career, in which she stood up against the male-dominated establishment to take on a groundbreaking gender discrimination case during the turbulent 1960s.

Helmed by Emmy-winning TV and film director Mimi Leder (ER, The West Wing, Pay It Forward), the historical drama takes place several decades before the New York-born feminist and liberal icon would be appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court. In fact, this year, 2018, marks Ginsburg's 25th anniversary as U.S. Supreme Court Justice. And despite a recent rib injury, Ruth, at 85, is showing no signs of slowing down.

Co-starring Justin Theroux, Kathy Bates, and Sam Waterston, "On The Basis Of Sex" is due to open theatrically on Christmas Day.

synopsis:
The film tells an inspiring and spirited true story that follows young lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she teams with her husband Marty to bring a groundbreaking case before the U.S. Court of Appeals and overturn a century of gender discrimination. The feature will premiere in 2018 in line with Justice Ginsburg's 25th anniversary on the Supreme Court.
